Jeremy Dutcher is an operatic tenor, composer, musicologist, and Polaris Prize winner. A member of the Tobique First Nation in North-West New Brunswick, Jeremy recorded Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa following a research project on archival recordings of traditional Maliseet songs at the Canadian Museum of History.
This video for “Lintuwakon ‘ciw Mehcinutfrom” from CBC music shows how Jeremy beautifully blends ancestral sounds with his own incredible singing and playing.
For his first-ever Folk Harbour performance, Jeremy will be joined by cellist Blanche Israël.
Friday, October 28: Tickets are $55 ($27.50 for those 25 years and younger).
Fellow Lifetime Friend and Festival favorite Jeff Davis says that Earl was “more than just simply a Board member and Lifetime Friend, he was a tirelessly, highly dedicated, hard-working Great Pal of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival”; further, Jeff recalled all the time he spent with Val and Earl, his regular billets for most of the history of the Folk Harbour Festival. Jeff says that when the Festival was on the house was full of summer friends, locals, performers, and family.
It’s hard to even articulate what Val and Earl Meister meant to the Folk Harbour Society, but it is easy to say that we owe them a deep debt of gratitude.
